    Just a guess. Did you write your own content?

    Try outsourcing it next time. There are some amazing writers on here.

    Choosing to not give up a project because of hubris is exactly why people lose money and don't succeed.

    You have to know when to hold them, and know when to fold them.

    Do you know how many things I've quite because it wasn't working out?

    bagging groceries
    digging ditches
    selling cars
    selling drugs
    and IM a few different times

    Just off the top of my head... there is nothing wrong with quitting a project if it's the right move.

    Why are you guys encouraging him to keep going? If he's already looking to turn back, it's going to be a hell of an unmotivated journey if he continue. He probably won't get anything done. Business isn't for quitters. So if you're a quitter, you know what to do.

    If you are even considering quitting, just quit. Quitting has NEVER crossed my mind throughout my journey. I'm not that type of person, but maybe you are.

    I had a little troll too, but I figured I'd add it in a separate post:

    Roughly translated as........

    Hello bhw.
    I am back with another problem - one that not many can relate to - but can understand.

    Bbefore I came to make money online I had a wonder but crazy street life,
    but one day I wanted more for myself and knew I could do more and landed in the online world.

    I worked on building websites and marketing in my spare time.
    I ended up cashing out pretty big back in 06-08 off the big social community thing and a great tube site.

    Then I ran into a wall when I lost my k or more adsense income and as the spam filters got stronger, my tactics ran dry.
    Learning from the muscle I was paying for a lot of tasks that I find very easy now lol;
    and aside with family I had to do what I had to do and ended up with a legal problem that cost me 25k to get free from
    - without a record smh.

    But it's just a life lesson and that should explain the spotted admin job I been doing on my sites now,
    and since having control of my life back I have just been getting right with family and putting together a master to own the web lol.

    I also have been thinking lately of giving it all up and doing the 9 to 5 thing because it seem harder to do than my first time,
    and family ain't tryna hear that lol but I still think I can stand strong any help?

    Im in the same boat. I been IM for so long I forgot what the 9 to 5 was like. So I'm going back to the 9 to 5. When I look over my years of IM, it was part-time thing when it should of been passionate and scaling and building larger projects. But the part-time work for a couple of months was what people more then most people made in a year.

    Actually when I look back how I got started it was mostly going to school and working the 9 to 5 and saying "there has to be a better way of making it" That mentality is what made me find lucrative IM ventures. Whenever I had free time I would study and work harder then ever to find them. But when I got into it full-time I was putting less and less work into it and was mostly researching and not executing. But now seeing how bad the work market is and seeing how everything works with getting a job. I'll never take for granted future opportunities and scale the hell out of everything lol and try to help out as many on the way.

    You may think about doing the 9-5 thing bro, but ultimately use that as a stepping stone for re-investment.

    I started off as IM as a side income, now it really is my full time income & I love it.

    However, you say about street life... If I where you, I would incorporate street life in my Internet Marketing.. So say you where hustling whatever, then do something in that niche??

    Example - If you hustled weed? legit version would be to hustle bongs, rolling papers, etc.

    You will get their mate, keep thinking positive, keep working, look for a job for re-investing..

    I told my brother this..

    Keep your job as your basic @ the start

    IM - Bonus

    You will find the more you work & the job been able to fund your ideas you will be able to give your projects the kick up the backside they need to get off to a flying start.

    You will find your IM - Bonus will go from bonus bit on the side, to a respected income.

    Then watch everyone around you trying to copy what you are doing & suddenly getting joe who you haven't seen in months, now wanting to be your best friend & wanting to do what you are doing :)


    Best regards bud

    Your desire and will come from within...honestly, if you need to seek out encouragement from others then maybe it is time to move on. You have to want it. Nobody can light that fire inside you other than yourself.

    Take a day and disconnect from the internet, and do some soul searching. Figure out what will make you happy. Aside from the $$$ you need to be happy. Life is short. Do what will make you happy.

    Think realllllllyyyyyyyyyyyyy further ahead.

    What kind of job you could do all your life ?
    2) No matter what your health condition is
    3) From anywhere in the world
    4) Without any boss

    Do you really want to quit ?

    Even if it takes 2 years to make money, WHO CARES. Do it part time but never stop.
    On step at a time, slowly

    We'll talk about it in a few years....
    Hope it helps

    Cheers
